Product Description

Firing Range: 1220°C-1240°C

The name Parian is derived from Paros, the Aegian Island famous for its beautiful white marble widely used for sculpture by the classical Greeks. Parian ware became very popular in the mid-nineteenth century and was manufactured by many notable Stoke-on-Trent potteries.
Parian is a self-glazing body, extremely translucent through a large temperature range.  Ideally suited for casting to produce figurines, dolls and light forms etc.
Please note:  This body contains a very white feldspar which uses a floatation method of particle distribution and some frothing may occur when making casting slip under high speed mixing.  Slow agitation is recommend.

Customer Reviews

By on
"Used Parian body for press moulding and extruding. Works well with some challenges. Only needs bisque firing but beware of heavy contact in the kiln as pieces can stick together."
